Safeguard Fileserver Encryption Agent does not and will not* support Apple MACs with BigSur with M1 ARM chip.
Is this or if not yet, will it be supported by Sophos Central module / with Intercept-X client? When?
Currently this lack of funtionality pushing us against other vendors with all new purchased MACs.
We need support also for new MACs to access encrypted files on our fileservers.
Note: The service release of SafeGuard Enterprise 8.30.1 supports macOS 10.14, 10.15 as well as 11.0.1 and 11.1 on Intel-based devices. There are currently no plans to add support for ARM-based devices (equipped with Apple's M1 chip) to Sophos SafeGuard.
As of now this is not supported, once it is supported in a future releases we will be updating the information on our forums.
Is it planned to support ARM chips with Sophos file encryption?
Will Sophos file encryption move to Central?
What is your road map about that tool?
